The largest freshwater lake by surface area in the world, Lake Superior is a powerful and expansive setting for sea kayaking. The Ojibwe people who have lived here for centuries call it “Gitchi- Gami”, or “Great Sea”. Explore the red sandstone cliffs, intricate archways and deeply carved sea caves of the Apostle Islands or the wilder and less-traveled islands of Black Bay, two of Lake Superior’s most interesting environs. Enjoy crystal views to depths of 40 feet, camping on pebble and sandy beaches and a combination of challenging open-water crossings and amazing coastline exploration. Each of these boreal forest ecosystems is home to wolves, moose, osprey, bald eagles and other wildlife. Also enjoy rock climbing at a Shovel Point in Tettegouche State Park, a volcanic rhyolite cliff overlooking Lake Superior.
